I gotta admit—this inlaying stuff is fun. (But tricky.) Honestly though, I bought the circular cardinal inlay online from Monster Woodshop. After deciding to use black walnut as the background, I got some feedback from my wife (and my wife’s sister who was visiting at the time) and “we” decided that the inlay would look even better if it was “framed”. So, I inlaid a circle of curly maple—and then inlaid the purchased inlay inside of it. (I inlaid an inlay into an inlay—say that 5 times real fast!) The rest was pretty conventional cutting board stuff. Oh yeah—the woods were black walnut, cherry, sycamore, curly maple, and purple heart.
